Jaipur, 21 Feb. "There were less numbers of trade unions, that was not the reason of formation of Bhartiya Mazdoor Sangh but to form such an organisation that believe in 'Nation First'. BMS is a movement of Nationalism and not a bread butter union like others", said Suresh Joshi, SAR KARYAVAH of Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh, while addressing more than 2000 dedicated workers of Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh who come from every nook and corner of the country to attend 17th All India Conference of Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh at Jaipur.

He told a lot of progress is witnessed in the last 66 years in all the fields like Education, Medical, Information Technology but still 40-45% people of the country are constrained to live below poverty line. Out of 6 lacs villages, only 1-1.25 lacs are having secondary education facility. Laborer find it difficult to earn bread and butter for the family after putting 14-15 hours of hectic work per day. Over all development of these people should be the target for the activists of BMS. He pointed out that importance of an organisation is not in numbers but in skill and awareness of an activist which come true only by study and thought process.

The Chairman of Reception Committee Mr. Gopal Sharma, also Editor of Mahanagar Times, Jaipur underlined the contribution of BMS in the development of Industries, Society and nation by quoting some of inspiring incidents from the life of Late Sh. Dattopant Thengadi and RamPrakash ji , the founder and former General Secretary of BMS respectively.
The BMS President Shri.C.K.Sajinarayanan, has given a new dimension to Trade Union by raising a slogan 'save labour - save nation'. He demanded that central \ State Governments should provide Social Security to the unorganized sector. He told we are committed to 'social security to all and ready to take agitational steps if the Government will not be ready to implement the same. A book written by Shri Sajinarayanan 'Ten years of UPA - Collapse of Powerful Economy' was released by Suresh Joshi on the occasion.
Distinguished leaders from several central trade unions like Sh Jagdish Raj Shrimali (INTUC), Pro. Amarjeet Kaur(AITUC), Com. DebRoy (CITU), Harbhajan Singh Sidhu(HMS), S P Tiwari(TUCC) and Mr.Lakshmi Bhatt (Trade Union of Nepal) also make their presence in the inaugural session. They appreciated the efforts made by BMS in strengthening trade union movement and making unity among central trade unions to fight against the anti labour policies of Central Government.
The session was compared by Sh.Brijesh Upadhyay, All India Secretary and Vote of thanks was given by Raj Bihari Sharma, General Secretary, Rajashtan State BMS.
The session was commenced in the morning by flag hoisting by the President C.K.Sajinarayanan and lighting of lamps in front of Bhagwan Vishwakarma.

Govt likely to increase and merge dearness allowance                            with basic pay: ToI News

NEW DELHI: The government may increase and merge dearness allowance (DA) with basic pay with the Union Cabinet expected to include the proposal as part of the terms of reference of the 7th pay commission. 

The move will facilitate announcement of interim relief to more than 50 lakh government employees and 30 lakh pensioners by the newly-constituted pay commission before the code of conduct for the Lok Sabha polls come into force. 

Central government employees unions have been demanding that besides raising DA to 100%, the government should revise the pay and merge DA with basic pay, considering market inflation and price hike of essential commodities.

As per practice, DA is merged with basic pay when it breaches the 50% mark. DA merger helps employees as their other allowances are paid as a proportion of basic pay. 

An official said if merger of 50% DA with basic pay was decided, it could lead to hike in salary by around 30-35%. He added that there were instances of announcing interim relief to employees apart from DA by a newly constituted pay commission prior to their implementation. 

Merger of 50% DA with basic pay was done in the 5th pay commission, but the 6th commission did not recommended it. 

The Centre is expected to announce next month a hike in dearness allowance by 10% which would make it 100% of basic pay. It will be the second double digit DA hike in a row as the government had announced a hike of 10% in September last year, effective from July 1, 2013. 

An official said hike in DA will not be less than 10% and would be effective from January 1 this year.
